Forum in Boardman highlights oil and gas boom



Published: Mon, March 11, 2013 @ 6:07 p.m.

BOARDMAN — Exterran Energy Solutions, which first announced a 65,000-square-foot manufacturing facility on Salt Springs Road in 2012, has already hired 61 local employees, with plans to bring on about 20 more within the next month or so.

The Houston-based company that provides services and equipment for oil and gas production, processing, treating, transportation and storage, chose Youngstown for its $13.2 million project because of an experienced manufacturing workforce and its geographic location, said Michael Grimland, the company’s director of manufacturing.

Exterran’s arrival in Youngstown, where it’s expected to generate more than $15 million in annual revenue, is a sign that the Utica and Marcellus shale plays are bound to stay competitive as domestic-energy production continues to ramp up across the country.

Industry officials and members of the state’s congressional delegation were eager to highlight why the oil and gas industry has been, and will continue to be, a boon for Ohio’s economy for decades to come at an economic impact forum today at Mr. Anthony’s Banquet Center sponsored by the Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber and other organizations.
